A black judge, offended by a white family’s concern that their toddler was frightened of black men after a violent home invasion and robbery, publicly shamed them and let off the convicted man with mere probation.

When Gregory Wallace was sentenced for alleged armed home invasion near Buechel, Kentucky, Judge Olu Stevens “slammed” the homeowners, Jordan and Tommy Gray, for not correcting their daughter’s fear of black men.

Wallace, who was convicted of robbery, had been found guilty of participating in the March 2013 armed home invasion, in which he and another black suspect burst into the Gray’s home and held the parents and their three-year-old daughter at gunpoint.

According to The Courier-Journal, prior to Wallace’s sentencing, Jordan Gray confessed that since the horrible home invasion, her young daughter had been terrified of black men: “Whenever we are running errands, if we come across a black male, she holds me tight and begs me to leave. It has affected her friendships at school, and our relationships with African-American friends.”

The father also indicated that his daughter has been “terrified of black males” since the home invasion.

Judge Stevens, who is also black, reacted to the Grays’ concerns by calling them racists.

“I am offended… I am deeply offended that they would be victimized by an individual and express some kind of fear of all black men,” he said. He said it was understandable that the three-year-old was upset — “she can’t help the way she feels” — but he attacked the parents for “accepting that kind of mentality and fostering those type of stereotypes.”

The Grays asked the judge to give Wallace a more serious sentence: “If holding a little girl at gunpoint gets you probation, then our system is flawed,” the girl’s father said.

Stevens ignored their pleas and sentenced Wallace to five year’s probation, saying he “deserved the opportunity to redeem himself” for violently invading the Grays’ home, terrorizing their daughter, and stealing their property.

Later, Stevens took to Facebook to publicly shame the victims of a home invasion after giving Wallace merely probation for burglary and robbery with a handgun. It was the mother’s secret racist views that made the toddler terrified of black men, not the formative memory of being terrorized at gunpoint by violent criminals:

Court brought it front and center this week. The case involved a burglary and the victims were a young couple and their three year-old child. The written victim impact statement on behalf of the child read that as a result of the offense committed against her parents in her presence, the child is in “constant fear of black men.” The statement, written by her mother, continues that the child clings to her parent when in the presence of any black man. The incident, the mother concluded, “has even affected our relationship with our African-American friends.”

I read this statement aloud in open court. For a reason. It was of little surprise to me that neither parent nor the child was present in court for the sentencing. After all, the defendant and the judge are amongst the individuals the three year old has fear of as a result of the crime. Do three year olds form such generalized, stereotyped and racist opinions of others? I think not. Perhaps the mother had attributed her own views to her child as a manner of sanitizing them.


If this isn’t a blatant display of racism by the judge, I don’t know what is. Bad enough he only gave the criminal five years probation, but then to criticize the family for not correcting their daughter’s “unreasonable” fear of black men is ludicrous. 

The two thugs took a cellphone and about $1,000 in cash saved for a vacation. Gregory Wallace’s accomplice, Marquis McAfee, was already on probation for a prior crime. Both men were 27.

Judge Stevens was lenient on Wallace when he told him, “I think the equities weigh in favor of you having the opportunity to redeem yourself.” So, the next time Wallace is arrested, he’ll be described just like his accomplice was this time, as being “already on probation for a prior crime.”

I don’t think that it’s unreasonable for anyone who may have had their home invaded and held at gunpoint by a purple dinosaur to fear purple dinosaurs in the future. Past events do have an impact on our lives – and based on that, I believe that this judge has shown excessive leniency for a man who held others at gunpoint – since when has that become acceptable conduct – even for a black man? And then to chastise the victims on Facebook for racism shows that his sense of morality and decency is as perverted as the gunman. He should be impeached, tarred, and feathered.

    I believe Judges should be held to a higher standard than this. ANY judge who who sits on a bench representing the constitution is bound by the scales of justice to be fair and unbiased regardless of personal beliefs hearing the case before them as it is presented. Chastising principals is only in movies or on tv shows. If he feels this way then he needs removal from position, to recuse himself prior to hearing, or get another job.

    • Garnet92 says:

      This judge illustrates how some blacks have used their “celebrity” to show racism against whites, apparently feeling that they’re justified because of past actions. As you correctly state, a judge should (and MUST) be impartial. A white judge doing something against a black family would be severely chastised – and rightfully so, therefore, this judge has shown that he is NOT impartial and should be removed.

    I ditto your comments, Garnet. His feelings of being offended have no place in the courtroom. He’s just another black guy trying to make a name for himself, and he did – racist loser. I’ve since read that officials are calling for his resignation and I hope they’re successful.

    Seem so unbelievable.

    Just read that the judge for the policeman in SC who shot the black man in the back is also black and does not believe in the Constitution. (Stand your ground).
    Don’t think it will be a fair trial.

    Thanks for this blatant criminal piece of judging, Garnet.

    • Garnet92 says:

      You’re welcome tannngl. I think that we’re beginning to see some blacks who are trying to get their retribution via our laws, like Barack and Eric Holder as well.

    I know little kids who have been bitten by dogs who then have a fear of ALL dogs.

    I guess they’re “specie-ists”, according to the brain-dead imbecile of a judge.

    • Uriel says:

      Hi Brian, I agree. It would have not mattered to the child what color or ethnicity, the same fear would have existed. The mother was stating the fact of fear. I do not know what steps to help the child were taken and neither did the judge unless brought up in court records.

    • Garnet92 says:

      True Brian, and I think my example of a purple dinosaur is also appropriate. The judge just exhibited, for the world to see, blatant racism and he is supposedly standing by his statement. Brain-dead he is!

  5. vonMesser says:

    Might I suggest this should be appealed to the state supreme court? AND the judge brought before an ethics panel.

  6. Hardnox says:

    The judges actions are so wrong on so many levels. The judge needs to be impeached for his conduct. The citizens need rally against him. If impeachment of judges were commonplace, or at least attempts, then this shit will stop,

    Alfred, Jesse and Eriq Holder must be proud of themselves!
